[Histonet] Re: amyloid controls

From:"Robert Richmond"

Steve Coakley asks about amyloid controls. They're notoriously
difficult to get, and unstained sections don't keep well.

What I want to know is - there are a number of methods for producing
amyloidosis in experimental animals (casein injection in mice was a
favorite) in the older literature. Is this animal amyloid suitable for
use as an amyloid control? If it is, why isn't it available?
